Dion Lewis ended his somewhat disappointing season on a high note, winning the final Big East Offensive Player of the Week award.

Lewis was an easy pick for the award after his big day. He racked up 261 yards and four touchdowns and four touchdowns - both career highs.

Dion ran for nearly 1,000 yards this season (956), 12 touchdowns, and a 4.9 yard per carry average. That, of course, is not a terrible season. In fact, it's a pretty good one - especially considering that Lewis split a good number of carries with Ray Graham this season. But coming off the year he had, his numbers saw a pretty big dropoff.

Still, nice to see him finish strong.
